About Write Yourself Well

Come Write With Us

At Write Yourself Well, we believe that writing should be fun. It should be treated like any other creative outlet, from painting to sculpture to printmaking. Whether you want to explore journalling, storytelling, poetry, memoirs or just playing with words, we have workshops for you. With membership access, you will receive access to the library of existing workshops, plus new content every week. From quick tips and tricks to in-depth workshops, we will have something to interest you! We are always looking to provide what our customers want too, so if you have any ideas for a workshop or something you'd like to see us discuss, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Aisha, founder of Write Yourself Well, is a poet based in Middlesbrough. She graduated with First Class Honours in English and Creative Writing this year and is currently studying for an MA in Creative Writing alongside working on her first collection of poems. Aisha wants to make writing workshops available to wider audiences who may not have thought about writing before, as well as helping established authors who are looking for inspiration or want to try something new.
